ThisGohan variant comes from the Broly – Second Coming film and, along with other recent releases, breathes new life into a potential Son Family Team. SP SSJ Teen Gohan BLU comes in the form of a powerful Defense Fighter with great Strike Attack that Synergizes primarily with Son Family Fighters despite his wealth of Tags.
He has access to Cover, but what’s interesting about his variation of Cover is that it gets stronger if a Teammate is killed. If he’s the last one alive, he trades in his Cover for some Damage inflicted, making him relevant at any point of the Match.
Most notably, he brings along his iconic Family KamehamehaUltimate Move, dealing massive Damage.
SP SSJ Teen Gohan BLU has some of the highest Health and Defense stats in the entire game, and his toolkit goes a long way in showcasing just how hard he is to kill. Son Family Teams specifically needed some Defensive viability, so he’s very much appreciated in that regard.
His base Strike Attack stat is already very high and gets even better the more Son Family Fighters he’s paired with. A deadGoku variant also sends him over the edge, increasing his Strike Attack further by 45%.
A Fighter’s stats and toolkits don’t always tell the whole story, Equips go a long way in how effective they are in a Match. SP SSJ Teen Gohan BLU’s wide variety of Tags have given him access to many Equips that make him even harder to take down.
He’s primarily Strike-based, and some of the better Son Family Fighters currently in the game are Blast-based, so the Team’s deck being dominated with Blast Arts Cards lower his Damage output.
He attempts to alleviate this with his Extra Move, which replaces Blast Arts Cards with Strike Arts Cards, but that can be very situational.
His Z-Ability only Buffs Strike Defense for Son Family, which includes Hybrid Saiyans, at 5 stars. While not the worst thing in the world, many new Fighters are being given Z-Abilities that Buff two stats at once. SP SSJ Teen Gohan BLU didn’t get this luxury.
The Son Family additions fromLegends Step-Up Vol. 3 as well asSP SSJ2 Youth Gohan RED from a previous banner are all extremely powerful. Again, while SP SSJ Teen Gohan BLU doesn’t necessarily like the Blast focused Team, he still performs great here.
When limit broken to 5 stars, he Buffs Hybrid Saiyan Strike Defense. While he’s a good addition to a Hybrid Saiyan Team, he should still be paired with as many Son Family Fighters as possible.

SP SSJ Gohan BLU’s Tags have blessed him with many viable Equips. “Of Course!” is amazing and gives him Damage and survivability, but can be foregone for more Offensive choices like"3x Kaioken Kamehameha!!!"or "You Making Fun Of Me?!". "No way..." is amazing for a purely Defensive optimization.

The following effects occur based on the number of battle members. 3 members: Reduces damage received by 40% until combo ends when changing cover. 2 members: Reduces damage received by 60% until combo ends when changing cover. 1 member: +30% to damage inflicted. +2 to own substitution count as default.
The following effects occur per "Tag: Son Family" battle member when this character enters the battlefield. +25% to Strike damage inflicted. +15% to own Ki Recovery. Additional +45% to Strike damage inflicted if allied "Character: Goku" is defeated.
True to the nature of mostGohan variants, SP SSJ Teen Gohan BLU is incredibly resilient and doesn’t go down without a fight. HisCover only gets stronger if someone on his Team is defeated, and he trades his Cover Ability in for Damage inflicted when he’s the last one alive.
He’s still an exceptional core option in Son Family, but he’s slowly but surely seeing himself phased out of the core due to superior choices that synergize much better with the Blast-centric theme of the Team.
